Idmonster - The Pleasures of Life [ramp306]


Published July 10, 2004


Idmonster is the 'nom de rec' of Brighton's own sound fiddler, Pendle Poucher. His new release, The Pleasures of Life, is an edited version of a longer project available online but is still fairly sweet in this streamlined format. Mr. Poucher spurts out smoothly snakey electronica delineated from the pack by excellent use of (presumably) live guitars and other humanistic touches that remove the 'machine primacy' feel that marks so much similar work in this field. There are four tracks here, none of them overly long, most of them manifesting a populist melodic stance and a rather engaging overall feel. Nothing is very harsh or jarring, but the string action makes things proceed in an identifiably linear pace, which is pretty hip. The title track even adds moody c86 style vocals, to create something almost anyone should find rather cunning. The Wire, April 2004
